We welcome Women’s History Month with the flourish of Buckshot LeFonque’s “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings,” as requested by KCRW Music’s executive producer Ariana Morgenstern. The 1994 electronic-epic samples Maya Angelou reading her seminal work of the same name over Fela Kuti’s “Beats of No Nation.”  With a centerpiece like LeFonque’s, it’s no wonder the rest of today’s tunes are flowing so freely. 

Dry Cleaning’s Swampy EP delivers a simmering remix of “Hot Penny Day” from 2022’s Breakthrough Artist Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul; Australian groovers Surprise Chef drop a seriously smooth new single; and a heady examination of the infinitely psychedelic influence of Pink Floyd’s 1973 master work The Dark Side of the Moon on its 50th anniversary has us feeling inspired.
